Lecture & Lab 3-25-17 AREDN Testing and Configuration @ FOFM in Dallas!


Our next Lecture and Lab will be all about AREDN, the Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network.

What is AREDN?

An Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network (AREDN™) is a high speed data network built with Amateur Radio Operators and Emergency Communications Infrastructure in mind.

AREDN™ is self-configuring and self-healing. Where possible, AREDN™ will establish connections with as many other AREDN™ compatible devices (nodes) as possible and form a redundant mesh like network.

Bring your NSM2 and/or  Rocket/Bullet radios to test operation, update to the latest firmware, and get up-to-the-minute tips and tricks concerning proper setup, and participate in a full mesh exercise.

If you don’t have the radios, that’s okay!  Observe, ask questions, and find out if AREDN is a good idea in your ham shack!

Learn about the hottest new HAM activity in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.

ORDER NOW – In time for the L&L!
